A number of airlines are considering a new cowboy-inspired seat that could help to fit more passengers on each plane.

The SkyRider, an interesting (but horribly uncomfortable looking) new type of airplane seat, will be on display at the Aircraft Interiors Expo Americas conference this week. It’s reported that a number of airlines are actually interested.

PopSci explains how they work:

The “SkyRider” is the latest innovation designed to save airlines money and, apparently, make passengers miserable. It is supposed to mimic the experience of riding horseback: “Cowboys ride eight hours on their horses during the day and still feel comfortable in the saddle,” says Dominique Menoud, director general of Aviointeriors Group, which will make the seats. Some cowboys might say otherwise, but there’s a larger point: In the future, do we really want to return to traveling Old West style?
